Peas on Earth

The office gatekeeper (aka receptionist) had a cartoon of peas standing on the earth, peas on earth.

Thought I’d share but seems like the picture is copyrighted. Didn’t want to get into trouble, but the sentiment is still there.

Somewhat, but maybe not, The Mouse’s dinner tonight.

Soybeans, Turnip, Banana, Smoked Pork

Can you tell I like this compartmentalized plate? Must be a throwback to hanabata elementary school cafeteria days.

Plus, with The Cat still crazy busy, the plate works to cut down washing. Hee hee.

Didn’t have peas in the freezer, had to use edamame as substitute.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse


The Cat’s in the midst of her busy season. The Mouse doesn’t want to mess up the kitchen too much.

Simple dinner.

Orange, Pear, Boiled Edamame

Simple, but still a bit of prep work. Cutting, peeling, boiling. Clean-up a breeze.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Was in the mood for banh mi yesterday, did not have the right ingredients. The farmers market, where there are usually items like bread and pickled vegetables, “not a drop to drink”. Sigh. Tried to “work around”.

“Deconstructed” “Banh Mi”

Mini ciabatta, green papaya salad, smoked meat (pork). Banana.

Not the right bread, papaya salad was not texturally correct, banana, fresh, not lumpia, smoked meat was the only saving factor.

Oh well, win some …

Food was ok, not what I was in the mood for. The hunt is on.

Eat well.

Jus’ pics of some of the bread/pastries we’ve recently acquired.

Honey Layer Cake

Take-out from the Uzbek eatery yesterday. Not bad, not too sweet, a little dry, good with hot tea.

Uzbek Naan

Also take-out from the Uzbek eatery. Thought The Cat might want to try.

Mini Rum Cake

Service fund raiser on campus. I think I wrote about this before. Pretty awesome, very “rummy”. A little pricey, but consider it a donation.

Puff Pastry

Chef “little” p is in town. The Cat likes.

Tomorrow is Monday. Ugh.

Enjoy. Eat well.

No Camel Necessary

Nor horse, nor SUV either.

Had to head into downtown today. Compared with weekdays, sorta a ghost town, a good thing. New eating place popped up on Yelp.


Intrigued. Never tried Uzbek cuisine before.


Cute yeah?

Selected the “Goluptsi” plate.

Stuffed Cabbage, Roasted Vegetables, Tomato Cucumber Salad, Marinated Carrot, Uzbek Naan Wedge

Pretty tasty (stuffed cabbage was one of Pop’s favorite dishes). The stuffed cabbage didn’t have tomato sauce (what The Mouse is used to), but very comforting. Definite order again. The vegetables and salads were great too! One sock off.

Stuffed Cabbage Detail

Ground beef and rice.

Good thing the nearby Walmart offers free parking on Saturdays (and yes, I did do a little shopping at Walmart).

Have to find more reasons to get into downtown on Saturdays. đŸ™‚

Maybe The Mouse will download Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble on the phone next time. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
